Experience These Majestic Animals At The East Texas Elephant Experience!
The Elephant Trio!
Jeanie was imported in the late eighties as an orphan after her parents were poached for ivory, and has been part of our family since 1999. Jeanie is our heaviest elephant weighing 9,500 lbs and stands 8 foot 10 inches at the shoulder. Jeanie is the most playful of the three, and loves to eat. She broke her right tusk close to the sulcus (upper lip) while digging, so we fitted her with a set of stainless steel caps to prevent cracking,and encourage healthy tusk growth.
Krissy along with Jeanie and Paige, was also brought to the United States as an orphan in the mid eighties. She has been part of our family since 1997. She is the smallest of the three standing 7 foot 10 inches at the shoulder and her weight is 7,800 lbs. Unlike Jeanie and Paige she was born without tusks.
Paige was brought to the united states in the mid eighties as an orphan. After her parents were poached for ivory. She has been part of our Family since 1996. She is the tallest of the three standing nine foot tall at the shoulder and her weight is about 8,600 lbs. Paige kept cracking the end of her tusks while out debarking trees and digging for roots. We fitted her with stainless steel caps to prevent anymore cracking and encourage healthy tusk growth.
